122 THE FATE OF MAN Christianity has many unpleasant associations: Christians seem to have done everything possible to facilitate modern anti-religious propaganda among the labouring classes. The task of creating a more just and humane social order has fallen into the hands of anti-Christians, rather than Chris- tians themselves. The divine has been torn apart from the human. This is the basis of all judgment, in the moral sphere, now being passed upon Christianity. All too often Christianity has been anti-human—has summoned men to fulfilment of the commandment to love God, without sufficient attention to the other, to love one's neighbour. Christians have drawn false moral conclusions from the doctrine of original sin, have denied man's creative capacity, and given their support to those forms of social order which gave rise to pressure and suffering, because they considered this good for sinful man. One of the worst examples of this deformation of Christian truth we find in relation to the virtue of obedience and humility. How often ,this has been distorted into humility in the face of evil, obedience to evil itself, a denial of personal conscience! The religion of love and mercy has been transformed into a proclamation of cruel and relentless attitudes toward men. God's very idea of man as His image has been betrayed, as has that of the God-man and Divine-human life.
